Chippewa Flowage Fishing Report

08/16/2016


Thank you for subscribing to Tom Boley's Guide Service fishing reports! It’s a great time to capitalize on late-summer patterns. Most people think of the late summer as a tougher bite but realistically it is one of the consistent bite of the season for nearly all species. In the past week we have fished for everything (musky, smallmouth, crappie, walleye, pike) and had success.

Crappie fishing has been awesome. As it always is this time of year. Channel swings, humps and cribs have all been productive. In my opinion the crib bite has not been as good as it has in years past. However crappies are holding on humps in the 12-17 foot range and they are thick.
Walleye fishing has been good on both bog humps and shallow structure(stumps, brush, weeds) I have no one set method to fish walleyes cater the presentation to the spot. We have been picking up our nicer walleyes suspended over deep water near bait.
We pulled back on the musky fishing the past week as the water got too hot 80+ (It puts too much stress on the fish to be caught and released when the water is that hot.) But we will be back on them tomorrow hopefully. We have been targeting fish around deep structure near loads of baitfish. We lost the 3 biggest fish we had on all season. Just didn’t hook up well. We caught some nice ones as well. Bulldawgs Medussas and swimbaits have been our tools. Should be a great bite in the coming weeks as the water cools.
Smallmouth has been good overall. The water has dropped about a foot and the fish have slid off the shorelines in the middle of the day. 6-10 foot range. In the evening they have been crawling back shallow. Topwaters have been good but the consistent producer has been the NED rig. It always gets them.
I have a few openings in the near future. Get in the boat and catch some fish.
